Announcing the 2017 Inductees to the Phantom Community Hall of Fame

All in all, 2017 was a great year for Phantom; We launched Phantom 3.0, saw our Phantom Apps count exceed 200, and our community playbook library expanded by five times! We also observed explosive growth in our Phantom community, in total size and in the number of active contributors.

These contributors brought so many valuable assets to the Phantom community throughout 2017:

  • Tech Session presentations
  • Live presentations at our first-ever Phantom SOC™ user conference
  • Significant product feedback and bug hunting
  • Collaboration with other community members
  • Phantom App authoring
  • Community Playbook contributions

These contributions are instrumental in strengthening the community and helping to shape the Security Automation and Orchestration product category.

We’re grateful for our thriving community and wanted to recognize our leading contributors in a special way. To that end, we’re pleased to announce the Phantom Hall of Fame; our way to show appreciation and spotlight the great work led by a number of individuals.

Without further ado, here are your 2017 Phantom Hall of Fame inductees!

On behalf of the Phantom community, we want to extend a big THANK YOU to these inductees! Their contributions have helped make the Phantom community a thriving success. There are many members already using the contributed Phantom Apps and Playbooks these users created, which realizes our goal of building an open and extensible platform that solves some of the toughest challenges within the Security Operations Center (SOC). As we get into 2018, we look forward to many new community members with more contributions to come.

The Phantom Hall of Fame program will be ongoing so there will be plenty of opportunities for new contributors to get recognized for 2018 contributions and beyond. Those interested can get started by joining the Phantom community and our community Slack channel to interact with other members and collaborate on new Apps and Playbooks that cover unexplored use cases. Additionally, keep an eye out for an announcement giving the details behind the next Phantom Playbook challenge that will offer a cash prize. Participation in the challenges also offers a path to getting into the Phantom Hall of Fame.
